Weddings can be one of the most stressful and complicated events of a woman’s life. As the big day arrives, final preparations are put into place but the most important person has to look and feel perfect. This is where Brides By Rani steps in with her calm and courteous approach to make-up, hair styling and henna.She is described as “One of the North’s most talented bridal artists.”   Rani is a qualified Hair and Make-Up Artist recognised and accredited by the professional bodies BABTAC, AB and AIT, as well as being a MAC Pro member, a stockist of Supercover Professional Make-up and Pharmagel skin care range.

As a freelance artist she offers professional make-up and hair styling for all occasions. This can range from weddings and special occasions to professional photo shoots, HD film, TV, music videos, fashion editorials and much more.

The Bradford-based artist understands the magnitude of being a bride and the anxiety during the hours just before the ceremony. She says “It is the biggest day of your life. How will you be feeling during these moments when you’re having your make-over done?  If there’s anyone who’ll calm your nerves, it’s your make-up artist.”  Some make-up artists try to rush through a bride’s preparations in an hour, but Rani is against hurried styling sessions.  For her it is about the quality of skill not the speed in which it is carried out.

Speaking passionately about her role, Rani points out the empathy she brings to each job: “I always try to put myself in the client’s shoes. From the initial consultation and trial to the actual day, I personally would be looking for a professional who will make me look and feel perfect in my eyes, and most importantly someone who will make me feel relaxed on the stressful day.  My job is to address all of these concerns and assure the bride-to-be that they are in reliable, skilled hands.”
